Prom Queen

Album: Hokus Pokus

Year: 1998


Won't you be my prom queen?
Won't you be my prom queen?
Everybody has a real good time

Another morning, I must get up and go to school
I'm takin too long to get dressed, I gotta look my best
Because today is not your ordinary, every morning
My high school prom is coming up
I heed my daddy's warning
I gotta find myself a girl to take to the prom
I shouldn't have to much trouble because I'm:
I'm very nice, my mother says I'm very handsome,
When I wear my good vest, and mother knows best
I got to school, I straggle through the hallways
I stop and gaze at all the girls just like always,
But this time, I must now approach them
or my daddy might get mad and break my wrist again (ow)
so I choose her; her hair, it matches with her face,
she is so lovely, my heart pulse begins to race,
i make my way between her friends,
and into her presence:
"Hello Christine, Would you be my prom queen?"
"I'd rather die!"
(psychotic repeating flashback- Christine's friends' laughter...)

There was a time when I could accept a "No"
That was before; Christine is gonna have to go
My parents will be proud of me when I bring her home
So now I sit and watch her practice in the gym dome
Christine is famous. She has so many different friends.
Will they miss her when she's dead or will they just pretend?
Nobody talks to me, I only talk to I,
I've been telling myself all day: She's gotta die...

"Good morning, everybody. This is Principal Rogers, and I would
just like to congratulate our Senior class and wish them a great
time at tonight's Prom dance."

Won't you be my prom queen?
(I can be your prom king)
(Repeat 2x)
Won't you be my prom queen?
(Everybody has a real good time)

It was really fuckin' easy, I mean who could hate her?
I took her towel from her locker to suffocate her
I had to haul away her gym bag and all her folders
and when it got dark, I carried her home over my shoulders
My daddy was asleep when I snuck her in the back
I thought about my situation and it's kinda whack
It sounds cheap, but we're having prom in my cellar,
But she's dead, so I guess I'll never have to tell her
I took the bottles of Damius, 4 dollars worth
I took the 17 dollars that was in her purse
I bought balloons, and streamers, and stuff to munch
I had a dollar left, I bought a Faygo punch
I hung the streamers and balloons on my basement wall,
I bang my head a couple times, I'm just too fucking tall
I would have took her to the school like a normal man,
But I had to kill her first; they'd never understand
I put a record on, and picked her up to dance
I bet she can't feel the woody growing in my pants
I know my daddy would be proud of all that i've done
Instead of hitting me he'd probably come and hug his son
I think about it as I dance slowly to the beat,
The more I think about it, tears are rolling down my cheek
I hope I show Christine a night like no other,
'Cause after all, thats how my daddy did my mother.

Principal Rogers: "Our Seniors deserve a night to celebrate
with friends for all their great work. Prom night is your very
own special night, because everybody always remembers
their high school prom."

Won't you be my prom queen?
(I can be your prom king)
(Repeat 2x)
Won't you be my prom queen?
(everybody has a real good time)
(Repeat 3x)

Everybody has a real good time
(Repeat to fade...)
